Two men charged in shooting of Dwyane Wade’s cousin

Dwyane Wade

Two brothers have been charged with the first-degree murder of Nykea Aldridge, cousin of Bulls shooting guard Dwyane Wade, according to Chicago police.

26-year-old Darwin Sorrells Jr. and 22-year-old Derren Sorrells were charged Sunday after a two-day investigation took place.

Aldridge, 32, was pushing her baby in a stroller with hopes of signing up her children in school when she was the unintended victim of crossfire in a gang-related shooting.

Aldridge was shot in the head and arm when the two brothers walked up to a third man and opened fire.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson will release further information at a news conference later Sunday.

The shooting came a day after Wade and his mother Jolinda were panelists in ESPN’s “The Undefeated”: “An Undefeated Conversation: Athletes, Responsibility and Violence.”

Following his cousin’s killing, Wade also took to Twitter for an emotional statement on social change.
